EyeR, why do we need weapons? you do know that a collection of space junk placed between us and earth is an effect shield?

The reason I bring up L4 or L5 as they are geosync orbits and would require little on our part to stay "afloat".

There are 5 Lagrangian points in space that provide geosync orbits of the earth. L1, L2, and L3 points are nominally unstable while L4 and L5 are more stable. Currently the amount of junk in L1 and L2 is making those crowed. International Sun Earth Explorer 3 (ISEE-3) ,Solar and Heliospheric Observatory (SOHO),Deep Space Climate Observatory (DSCOVR),and LISA Pathfinder (LPF) are all currently at L1. L2 is even more crowded.

L4 and L5 are far enough out and away as to give us a huge time advantage in case of attack.

Again we dont need weapons that can be construed as a violation of the treaty. The use of a simple mass driver that you might use to break up an asteroid to help mine it can be used.

And cleaning up and using the space junk as shielding is a smart use of out limited resources.
